That would be a very interesting watch. I bought an interesting JLC single button chrono at a boot sale a couple of years back which was a lovely watch. Wish I'd kept it.

I like the photo provided by Aifo. Looking at the new magazine, i too get the feeling this watch might pay a tribute to the Zenith El Primero (which kind of looks like Aifo's picture).

What i am thinking here is that most of the waches featured in the Vintage Watches article have been revived, except from the Zenith, Heuer and Patek Philippe.
The Rolex Submariner has already been revived in the form of the C60, the Omega Speadmaster in the form of the C7, the IWC Big Pilot's watch in the form of the C8 and the Cartier Tank in the form of the C15.

I disgree in some of your comparisons here. I just don't see the Omega Speedmaster in the C7 or Cartier Tank in the C15.

It could just be me as we all get different impressions...but I don't see those 2 being that close in style.

I am actually pleased you are saying that Kip, because this means there is room for new models!!

I guess what i was suggesting is that there are some broad similarities in terms of features (although i accept that i was streaching my argument a bit here, yes Cartier is square and so is C15 but that doesn't necessarily make them similar) #-o

Either way, the posibility for a classically looking watch with modern workings is exciting :-P

I'm not sure why a mono-push mechanism is better than a dual-push though? Don't quite understand the differences yet, but is sounds like the mono-push is more expensive, complex, and has less functionality (as you can't pause the stopwatch). What are the benefits? :-s

I had a play with a very nice Girard-Perregaux at a Pawn shop on Fleet Street. I'd have bought it if the bracelet fitted. Anyway, this was a dual button chron with a third button inside the winder. The third button activated a split feature which splits the second hand (there are two hands, one under the other) leaving one carrying on and one to take a reading from. Another push synchronises them again so that they look like just one hand. Lovely mechanism.
